2018 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival: LL Cool J/ New Orleans Tricentennial

     So one of the many beautiful things about living in Louisiana is the ability to have a good time without planning it. This weekend marked the end of the 2018 JazzFest and the 300th Anniversary of the city of New Orleans. While the tickets to such an event may not seem reasonable, having access to stage acts from Anita Baker to Aerosmith makes it worth the wild! So I didn’t see Aerosmith or Ms. Baker, but I did witness the legendary hiphop master LL Cool J rock the golden mic on JazzFest Congo Square Stage  🔥🔥🔥🔥 Here’s my backstage view:        While spending some time in New Orleans, I decided to take in some of the views I’ve grown up with and share it with you. Being from this great state, I missed it tremendously while I was in the U.S. Army. When I moved to New York, I would make sure I took a vacation to come back

YouTube – Allure Beauty Box

    For the past 3 or four months, I can honestly say there is a love/hate relationship between myself and the Allure Beauty Box. Like that great-aunt with the terrible garlic breath that you know is going to give you an awesome present for the holidays. Or that hideous relationship that you were absolutely happy ended but you missed the kisses. Its like….urgh! From the first box that I got, there was something in there for me and something in that box that totally made me want to pack it back up, put it in my car and drop it off at one of my friends’ house as a gift. Like what’s the point?      One of the many perks of getting the Allure Beauty Box is that it exposes you to beauty and skincare companies all over the world that you probably never heard of. You also get the chance to try products that have come out in makeup stores

Did you see???? Destiny’s Child Coachella performance 😎

    On last night, Beyonce, Michelle Williams, and Kelly Rowland reunited at Coachella to put on a reunion show. Do we need to remind you that they did not disappoint? There’s no doubt that everyone was one their feet cheering as the talented trio performed some of their hits as “Say My Name’, ‘Lose My Breath’, and ‘Solider’. Needless to say that the performance will rival many Destiny’s Child performances from the past and any in the future gurl!!!!! Funny thing is Destiny’s Child performance outweighed Beyonce’s performance with Jay-Z.  What do you think? Enjoy your day  ✨✨

New Orleans Fashion Week – Stevie Boi

    In my travels throughout my life, I’ve noticed that a person’s face, a song, a location, an aroma…..things like this can remind you of something. Often, we can remember things vividly with such things to aid us. When Beyonce came on the scene with the song ‘Diva’ and wore those iconic shades at the beginning of the video, I was in a trance. Never did I imagine that I would one day get to meet the mastermind behind that piece of work. Those shades were made by no other than the celebrity designer, Stevie Boi (StevieBoi.com).      You know I had to bring a little twist to the experience, all in love. Please enjoy my video, photos of the venue and the shade collection Stevie Boi brought to New Orleans Fashion Week 2018.  More videos to come!!!!   Buy 3 minis of your choice, get 3 FREE surprise deluxe samples!

Mardi Gras 2018 is over 😢 😢 😢

Mardi Gras is over ☹️☹️☹️ but I had a good time!!!!! Although I live about an hour away, going to The Big Easy is always an exciting trip for me. Here’s a picture I took at the 2018 Zulu BigShot ball at the Hyatt Regency – New Orleans    I want to personally thank the staff at the Hyatt Regency – New Orleans for their professionalism. I was merely a guest for an event and was given optimum treatment.  I’ll be making a post on Mardi Gras in the near future and the greatness in and around New Orleans.
